TIFF 2012: Strange new images for SHINNING documentary ROOM 237

The films tag line is very simple, “Some films stay with you forever…and ever…and ever.” That line alone sends shivers up our spine. The folks at the Toronto International Film Festival will also be feeling chills as Room 237 is unleashed upon them. Check out the news and new images below.

Rodney Ascher’s experimental documentary Room 237, which explores numerous theories about the real meaning of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, will be premiering at TIFF this year.

IFC Films has picked up Room 237, which had its world premiere in the festival’s New Frontier section, and will roll it out later this year via a theatrical/day and date VOD release. In the interim the word is that the film will screen this spring in the New Directors/New Film series in New York, and Cannes is a likely bet to debut the film across the Atlantic.

A subjective documentary that explores the numerous theories about the hidden meanings within Stanley Kubrick’s film The Shining (1980). The film may be over 30 years old, but it continues to inspire debate, speculation, and mystery. Five very different points of view are illuminated through voice-over, film clips, animation, and dramatic reenactments. Together they’ll draw the audience into a new maze, one with endless detours and dead ends, many ways in, but no way out.
